    How to locate an apps settings folder.
    I am using Smith Micro's Moho Pro 13 animation software on an iMac osx 10.14.5. Can anyone tell me how to locate the folder which contains an Application's settings folder.? For example, I want to locate a folder on my iMac which contains Moho Pro settings. I do not know how to find that folder on my iMac. Does anyone have any advice about how to locate such application files and folders? Thanks for any advice.

    Settings in most applications are usually stored in PLIST files and they could be in a couple of locations. "/Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/<application name>" or "/Library/Application Support/<application name>". Assuming Moho Pro uses PLIST and stick to the standard, that's where I'd start looking.

    The PLIST file is just an XML file, so you might not make heads or tails out of it.

    Why do you want to the settings file(s) anyway?

    To find any file like that and to make things easier, you need to download and use Find Any File (FAF):
